Veteran Volunteers

Are you a Military Veteran? Do you have a few hours each week to spend with a fellow Veteran on hospice?

If so, Grace Hospice is looking for you! At Grace Hospice, we understand and value the bond that Veterans have with each other. We realize that it is a unique bother/sisterhood that non-veterans are unlikely to fully understand.

Our Vet-to-Vet program places Veterans with Veteran Hospice patients to provide support, understanding and friendship during end of life care.

Hospice services are designed to provide comfort care as well as emotional support and spiritual support in the final phase of a terminal illness. Grace Hospice ensures that our Veteran patients will spend their final days of their journey in comfort, dignity and honor.

Veteran Volunteers receive training related to the core principles of hospice and our Veteran Volunteer services all in order to promote the best outcome for patient and Volunteer alike.

If you would like more information on this unique opportunity, please contact Grace Hospice today!

Connect with the Volunteer Coordinator today at 888-978-6142 or mraymond@ghospice.com.
